Pastel paradise.  One of the things I love about diving is that it tends to occur in places where it is nice to be when you are not diving. Case in point, this is the view to the east from Rum Point, Grand Cayman.

A sailboat passes by Cayman Kai, on the North shore of Grand Cayman.  The really small white dots on the horizon line are dive boats on the North wall.  A beautiful place to dive.  A beautiful place to

Backlit shot of an eel. Got a lot of light through the mouth. Kinda reminds me of a corporate executive promotional photo. If only he had his hand up to his chin in the "Thinker" pose.

Very cool behavior shot. This basket star has wrapped itself, protectively, inside a gorgonian during daylight hours.

While struggling in the surge to photograph green striped gobies beneath the shore line sea urchins, I came across this tiny little crab. It looks like he got splashed by paint or, maybe, he grew up in the late 60's or early 70's.

Eyes Wide Shut
You see this all the time with human photos. First time for me with my fish buddies. Secretary blenny in a full-on blink. Inset shows next shot with eyes open. Then again... I guess maybe I see the point of closing those eyes! ...

The view of sunset during our dinner after a day of diving. Hand-held panorama with my daughter's pocket camera. This one had them lined up at the rails in the restaurant taking photos.

Cling-fish on a gorgonian. 4 mm or less in length. Nikon 105 with Subsee 5X. 1/250; f22. Thanks to Katie, with Indigo Divers, for teaching me how to find this great little subject while I learn to use my 5x.

Juvenile decorator crab. 1/125; f32; Nikon 105 and Subsee 5X. The adults of this species are covered with so much growth, they are hard to even recognize. Who knew such a beautiful, colorful creature was under that stuff?
